World Peace Day: Foundation Appeals To Bandits, Kidnappers To Ceasefire

The Country Director, Global Peace Foundation Nigeria Reverend John Joseph Hayab has appealed to bandits, kidnappers and terrorists to ceasefire and allow peace to reign in Nigeria.

He made call at the commemoration of International Peace Day 2021, organised by the Ph.D Students of Peace and Conflict Resolution, PCR, Nasarawa State University Tuesday, with the theme “Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world.”

The Christian Cleric urged bandits, kidnapers and insurgents to be kind enough to recognise humanity on “this special day of peace” by not committing or causing any act of violence.

Hayab, who is also the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN Kaduna State chapter, noted that it was imperative for criminals to recognise the importance of peace. He added that the theme was carefully selected by the United Nations to reflect and heal from the COVID-19 pandemic that had devastated the world’s socio-economic stance.

On his part, the University’s Vice Chancellor Mohammed Bala, commended the students for the initiative, adding that most agitation going on across the country were for selfish interest, adding that such agitations were meant for political gain.
